the obama administration, congressmen writing a letter directly to leon panetta, wanting to know why it took so long to send help to benghazi. congressman chaffetz, you wrote a letter. i'm curious if you expect an answer. >> i'm tired of written letters. wide receiver written letter after letter, exercised as much patience as we can. it's passing the election, thanksgiving, and it's time for the administration to step up, do what the president said they're doing, being open and transparent, but they're not. we're not getting the an-wers. >> greta: all right. why don't you just summon secretary of defense panetta to a committee hearing? >> we're getting to the verge of that. darrell issa has been exceptionally patient, but we're getting to the point where we'll issue subpoenas. it's obvious they won't give us the answers we deserve to have. >> greta: what's the justification for being patient? four americans were murdered. and there have been -- stories have been put out there that simply are not believable, the one being the video which is not believable, the administration admits is not bel
asked about u.s. pressure but also the u.s. playing a greater role. if the obama administration says let's let them settle it themself but they said we'll play a more aggressive role. that's the challenge for the obama administration in the second term where as in the first term they wanted a light footprint. >> there's benghazi. the president, one aspect -- we talked about the investigation. the president is expected to announce a number of top appointments, including cabinet positions in the coming days, conceivably some as soon as this week and one of the questions is, and you see the two of them there, do you think he will take on this fight and name susan rice to be -- secretary of state and do you think the senate will confirm him. >> president obama has confided in me on his secretary of state. i rather think he'll appoint susan rice. i'm not a fab of -- fan of hers but i think she'll be confirmed. john kerry might be a worse secretary of state so maybe one goes ahead and lets him have the secretary of state of wants. other maybe one votes against it as senators say she wasn't for
on the libya mess. a new allegation that the obama administration still cannot get its story straight after so much time, even as recently as this morning. ironically, this latest charge flows directly out of an attempt at damage control. u.n. ambassador susan rice's trip to capitol hill, she and the acting cia director, michael morell, meeting with republican senators john mccain, kelly ayotte and lindsay graham, who were not pleased with what they heard. >> it is clear that the information she gave the american people was incorrect when she said it was a spontaneous demonstration triggered by a hateful video. it was not, and there was compelling evidence at the time that that was certainly not the case, including statements by libyans as well as other americans who are fully aware that people don't bring mortars and rocket-propelled grenades to spontaneous demonstrations. >> in a statement after the meeting, ambassador rice said that neither she nor anyone in the administration intended to mislead the american people. but the breaking news concerns the part in her sunday talk show statements
she and the obama administration misled the american public about the deadly attack on americans in libya. >>> the election was only three weeks ago, but president obama's about to shift back into campaign mode. and we're learning exclusive new details about the personal and professional life of the woman at the center of the scandal that forced the resignation of cia director david petraeus. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with the obama administration's latest attempt to explain the misleading information given out in the days after the september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. four americans including the u.s. ambassador to libya died in what we now know was a terrorist attack. but that isn't what the u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice said when she went on national television five days after the attack. today rice is up on capitol hill. she's explaining what happened and some big-name republicans clearly are not very happy with her answers. our senior congressional correspondent dana bash is following what's b

. a discussion of u.s. energy efforts and the energy policy of the obama administration in the next four years. >> we want to welcome back to our table, president and c.e.o. of the american petroleum institute. let's go back to campaign 2012. the american petroleum institute spent about $868,000 on the 2012 campaign cycle. total contributions, $650,000. contributions to candidates around $220,000. given that you spent a lot on republican governor mitt romney's bid spent more towards republicans, how will this impact your ability to communicate with the white house and the congress? what do you think your relationship will be like? guest: we ran a vote for energy campaign, which was focused on elevating energy to be a top draw issue. we believe was highly successful. both candidates were both giving a full endorsement of oil and natural gas as a key form of energy here in the united states to create jobs and help with our economic recovery. overall, the dollars we spent were not partisan in nature. we weren't supporting one candidate over the other, our candidate was energy and focused on eleva

responsible for brokering the deal. i give actually the obama administration a lot more of the responsibility. i wouldn't call it credit for pressuring both israel and the egypt to get hamas to agree to the cease-fire. it is a very limited cease-fire. it won't last. it doesn't change the strategic environment and it clearly gave morsi the view that he would have a free hand domesticly to do what he has just done. melissa: i don't want to let you go without asking you i was struck by pictures exhuming yasser arafat questioning what he did of. what do you think of that? >> i don't think he died of polonium poisoning. only people that used that is soviets. i don't think they killed arafat. i think this is way pinning his death on somebody else. as happens in that part of the world it is not their responsibility but somebody else's. melissa: why now? >> an issue kicking around for quite some time i think circumstances led to it being this time. i don't attribute to any grander plan. i don't think it will fundamentally change the circumstance there is. melissa: ambassador, thanks for coming on. we

[ laughter ] >> minus three points, exactly. talk to me about chuck hagel. >> first we have to start with susan rice. if she can handle the united nations, maybe she can handle the united states states senate. she does go hard left. that's exactly why the republicans fear her. she is still my first choice. i would pick tim romer or dick lugar. you've got bipartisan ship, somebody a lot of people could work with, including then senator obama who traveled around the world with him talking about nuclear disarmament. i think that is someone the president is comfortable with and the senators will be comfortable with. i think that's very important if we're going to retake the center. if you can't get susan right one of the hoosiers. >> one of the hoosiers wins. every fantasy draft every cabinet fantasy draft is talking about the hoosier twins. i say james cunningham, the ambassador to ir

. >> but the obama administration no less than its preds so sors has been thoroughly vexed by the middle east, with the syrian regime quashing a two-year uprising that killed more than 30,000 people. where iran despite tough sanctions on the energy sector marches toward a nuclear weapons capability. and where the arab-israeli conflict festers, despite lofty talk from washington early on. >> today you will see an example of the kind of robust diplomacy that the president intends to pursue. >> clinton helped broker this month's truce between hamas and israel but ties with jerusalem frayed since 2009 and other danger spots such as north korea are no less dangerous than they were four years ago. >> she has a small legacy with burma, a positive. but she has a legacy with libya which is at best incomplete and legacy with syria which is seriously worrying. in many ways the big issue of her time as secretary of state was this arab upheaval that happened on her watch. so far, the u.s. record has not been very good and we have not been leading for the most part. and we have left a lot of problems for t
accusing the obama administration of a obama cover-up. we spoke with senator kyl earlier tonight. why do you think so many republican senators are interested in benghazi, democrats aren't, some organizations are, some are not? >> well, it's a bad story for the administration. if you're a friend of the administration, or supporter, you want to subly mate the whole story. if you're an republican, you want to know what happened. americans were killed. there were calls for security, and nothing happened. who made the decisions? what does taking responsibility mean? it means, first of all, acknowledging what happened. and so far this administration has -- i'll say it -- been engaged in a coverdown. >> greta: why is it so hard to get information? is it because it was election season, the house and senate has been out campaigning, the president has been out campaigning? we're now two-plus months into this, and this is -- for lack of a better word -- four homicide. >homicides. >> you have it right. for a while attention was focused on the presidential campaign, succeeded in not letting the story

doing it now? the obama administration will have an opportunity to look at these proposals in november and december and hopefully decide to take advantage of them and use them next year. also i am hopeful and will recommend that this not just be administrative action. congress should implement this, too. beyond that, we will have the proper recommendations with regard to other issues of security, jobs, efficiencies, innovation. this is such an important part of our economy in america. if we do not do it in the right way, we will make mistakes. when you legislate an atmosphere of crisis, where you have a mess on your hands, you quite often do not do it very well. yes, we are experiencing some good times in energy diversity now. it seems to me now is the opportunity and a fantastic time of challenge for us to develop an overall, the national energy policy to pull things together and plan for the future and not wait for another crisis. another crisis will come. when you look at the impact of energy throughout the world, what is happening with us and how we are all interrelated, it is obvi
